Listing by the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage

The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH), an Irish Government body established to compile a catalogue of important post-1700 architecture in Ireland, has recently completed uploading its survey of West Cork. Many remaining structures from the old Cork, Bandon & South Coast Railway have been included, such as the Chetwynd Viaduct and the better-preserved stations. I am delighted the NIAH have, following submissions made by me last year, decided to include the viaduct at Milleenanannig and the tunnel at Kilpatrick in their survey, structures which might have otherwise been overlooked (owing to their difficulty of access). I am also pleased the NIAH have used some of my photos of these structures, previously published on this blog. The inclusion of these two important Victorian structures is a crucial first step on the process towards getting them officially listed, which I now hope will happen in the months (years) ahead. Here are the links to these two structures on the NIAH website:

Milleenanannig Viaduct, near Dunmanway, Co. Cork

Kilpatrick Tunnel, near Bandon, Co. Cork
